A non-profit organization that operates an affordable seniors' building in the District of North Vancouver is looking for more tenants to rent its below-market units after council unanimously voted earlier this week to lower the age requirement to live there. Stefan Baune, executive director of the Kiwanis North Shore Housing Society, said the non-profit organization asked council to lower the minimum age for residents from 65 to 55 as it was having challenges finding tenants who met the eligibi

The news release issued by the Indian Ministry of External Affairs on Friday did not say what prompted the warning. It said the ministry and Indian diplomats have brought several incidents to the attention of Canadian authorities. It also said the alleged perpetrators have not been brought t

WASHINGTON (AP) — It's a Washington mystery that no one seems able to unravel. The Supreme Court apparently still hasn't found the person who leaked a draft of the court's major abortion decision earlier this year. In a television interview airing this weekend, retired Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer, who left the court in June when the justices began their summer break, says he hasn't heard that the person's identity has been determined. Breyer, 84, was speaking with CNN anchor Chris Walla
Russia launched referendums on Friday aimed at annexing four occupied regions of Ukraine, drawing condemnation from Kyiv and Western nations who dismissed the votes as a sham and pledged not to recognise their results. Ukrainian officials said people were banned from leaving some occupied areas until the four-day vote was over, armed groups were going into homes, and employees were threatened with the sack if they did not participate. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy said in a nightly address that the votes would be "unequivocally condemned" by the world, along with the mobilisation Russia began this week, including in Crimea and other areas of Ukraine occupied by Russia.
An investigation is underway after Surrey RCMP say a group of men "swarmed" an officer's police cruiser in the Strawberry Hill area of Surrey earlier this month, although a number of witnesses claim the situation was instigated by the officer. The incident was captured on several videos filmed by members of the public at Surrey's Strawberry Hill Plaza on Sept. 11, just after 9 p.m., when a confrontation took place between a group of South Asian men and the police officer. Police say the officer
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon announced a number of new programs Thursday that are aimed at helping service members who are struggling with housing shortages and steep food and living expenses as they move from base to base. Gil Cisneros, undersecretary for personnel, told reporters that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin ordered the moves, which also include programs to expand child care and make it easier for spouses to find work. The new programs, he said, will help “ensure we continue to offer
Ottawa police say they are reviewing exactly what happened when a social media post about the murders of women this year was edited to remove the word "femicide." On Sept. 16, Ottawa police posted a bulletin about five recent homicides of women and how they shared similarities. "The women were all victims of femicide," the bulletin read. "In each case, men are facing charges." Then minutes later, the post was once again published on the force's social media feeds, but this time, the word "femici
When it was first announced, Don't Worry Darling, seemed to be the ideal project to bring actor-turned-director Olivia Wilde's career to the next level. A hot script, A-list stars — what better way to build on the buzz from her hilarious feature film debut Booksmart? And now here we are, Wilde ushered onto The Late Show to do damage control after rumours and stories of behind-the-scenes drama followed the film like a pack of paparazzi. No, Harry Styles did not spit on Chris Pine, she told host S
A man and a woman arrested a year ago for allegedly feeding coyotes in Vancouver's Stanley Park have been charged with four offences under the Wildlife Act and must abide by specific bail conditions as their case winds its way through provincial court.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California Gov. Gavin Newsom will travel to Texas on Saturday, venturing into the territory of one of his chief political foils while seeking to boost his own profile amid a noncompetitive reelection campaign back home. Newsom is on his way to an easy victory for a second term as governor of the nation's most populous state, facing a little known and underfunded Republican challenger one year after defeating a recall attempt. With little pressure at home, Newsom has bee
Some residents in Port aux Basques have been forced to flee and some have lost their homes as Fiona cuts through parts of Atlantic Canada.
PARIS (AP) — Kylian Mbappe added another fine solo goal to his collection and Olivier Giroud moved closer to France's scoring record as the defending World Cup champions beat Austria 2-0 in the Nations League on Thursday. Mbappe skipped past three defenders before drilling in his 28th international goal in the 56th minute, before Giroud celebrated his recall by heading powerfully in from Antoine Griezmann's cross 10 minutes later to move onto 49 goals — two behind Thierry Henry's national record
He's only been riding his motorcycle for a few months, but Marshall McNaughton has already seen how dangerous it can be. "A lot of people are distracted and are just trying to go to work," he says. "They're not thinking about the big picture. They just look at you as an object. When I'm going to work or just go for a little ride, you have to keep your head on a swivel because people are very dangerous." McNaughton has seen things that people do behind the wheel. "They're on their phones, changin
HALIFAX, Nova Scotia (Reuters) -Powerful storm Fiona slammed into eastern Canada on Saturday with hurricane-force winds, forcing evacuations, blowing over trees and powerlines, and reducing many homes to "just a pile of rubble." The U.S. National Hurricane Center (NHC) said the center of the storm, downgraded to Post-Tropical Cyclone Fiona, was now in the Gulf of St. Lawrence after racing through Nova Scotia. After taking its toll on Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, the storm battered Newfoundland, but is now likely to weaken, the NHC said.
The owner of Fleisch Delikatessen is pushing for more action from the Edmonton Police Service after she says officers damaged her patio. Katy Ingraham said when she arrived at her restaurant on Aug. 17, a significant part of the patio was mangled. The concrete barriers surrounding the outdoor seating area had been pushed into the wooden fence and tables. Ingraham says she initially thought the damage was caused by an impaired driver and she called the police to file a report. She said the attend
On Monday, in what seems like a scene out of a science fiction movie, NASA will slam a spacecraft into a distant asteroid to see whether it can nudge its orbit — all in an effort to test a way to protect Earth from any potential future threats. The good news is that there's no need to panic: The asteroid, which is part of a binary — or two-bodied — system, is not a threat to our planet, and there are no known ones that are headed our way for at least the next 100 years. However, space agencies l
